Thank you so much to our VIA Mitzvah Day Chairs Caryn Murillo and Lauren Olens for a highly successful Mitzvah Day! This duo worked hard to set up projects and make sure that everything ran smoothly the day-of. Young Adults and Families participated in 7 Mitzvah Day Projects around Atlanta and made hope and opportunity happen for so many people!
Our Mitzvah Day Chairs wanted to share why they participate in Mitzvah Day:
Caryn - I participate in mitzvah day because it's a great opportunity to give back to the Atlanta community. It's exciting to know that so many others are volunteering at the same time as me and that together, we're making a big difference for so many people.
Lauren - I really enjoy getting to see everyone participate in all types of community service projects, because my friends may sign up for completely different ones than I would choose, yet we can learn about all of them at the end of the day. It's a fun day for all the young adults to come together, enjoy themselves, and more importantly, make a larger impact.
